2018 Fall District Meetings—Florida Caribbean Region
As you plan the start of the school year, please don't forget to schedule time to attend the district administrator meeting. Once again this year, the district meetings should be full of pertinent information, great discussion starters, and wonderful fellowship. We hope you will come and bring some or all of your administrative team.
This year, we plan on taking a deep dive into the subject of SCHOOL SAFETY. This issue encompasses much more than the current political climate and media would have us believe (i.e. gun control, etc.). We will answer the question: What does it mean to be "safe" in a Christian school?
A Christian worldview approach to safety views this important matter holistically:
• Emotional Safety - what does it mean for a student to be emotionally safe in a school setting?
• Physical Safety - what must a school provide (policies, procedures, facilities. etc.) to ensure physical safety?
• Spiritual Safety - how can a Christian school provide an environment of spiritual safety which allows students a safe environment to wrestle with their spiritual condition, belief, and faith? Is it safe to doubt here?
All district meetings will begin at 9:00 AM (Continental Breakfast at 8:30 AM) and will end promptly at 12:00 PM. Lunch will be on your own. We encourage you to plan to eat locally with other administrators for your own personal growth, encouragement, and connection.
